It's Finally Friday

It's early. I'm typing while listening to LLB's iPod shuffle. This thing is awesome! I might have to get one for myself. Hers is hot pink and the sound is phenomenal! I type a whole lot faster when I'm listening to techno, by the way... Yup, she likes techno -- so do I. I'm cool, you know.

I have another busy day today. It started out as not so busy, but you know how it goes...

It seems the children have a dance this afternoon sponsored by the Drama Club. LLB was supposed to sell tickets on Wednesday during her lunch period with her parter K. The principal told them they couldn't do it without an adult present.

LLB was fine with that until she realized that no tickets would be sold on Wednesday because no adults were present to help them. No adults were present because the Drama teacher didn't schedule any of us -- and we didn't know that he hadn't done that. It appears that no adults were present during yesterday's 6th grade lunch, either.

According to the children, they are going to sell tix this morning before school, but they need an adult. Guess where I'll be? I'll be in the school lobby selling tix if you need me between 8 and 8:30.

After that, I am off to Costco to get the breakfast items for 112 of my closest band friends for tomorrow's trip to Hershey. Grambug is going to come with me. She needs a couple of things and we are going to get a berry smoothie when we finish. It's all about the treat at the end. :-)

Upon arrival home, I will try to con - ummm... I mean convince - Mr. to take Zebbie to the kennel for me. Zebbie is going on vacation while we go to Hershey. He's a great dog, but he'd be alone here too long. He'd also have all 4 legs crossed and double crossed by the time we get home. He's going to go play with his friends.

After a few other things this afternoon, we will all come home and be in bed early because tomorrow morning - early - we are off to Hershey. Wish us luck! The kids sound great - they had a rehearsal after school yesterday and the band teacher is thrilled with them. I think the teacher is the reason these kids are so good. They work hard because he expects nothing but their best. I know my two have worked their tails - umm... I mean lips - off to get the music right.

So, after they play their music, we'll be on the coasters and eating chocolate. Because, like I said before -- it's all about the treat at the end!!

And now for my Friday Feast:
Name something you would not want to own. An iguana.

Describe your hair (texture, color, length, etc.). Brown with gray accents, wavy, shoulder length... it's all the same length and I part it on the side.

Finish this sentence: I’ll never forget ___________. Whatshisname

Main Course
Which famous person would you like to be for one day? Why? I really don't want to be anyone famous. I'm happy being myself.

Write one sentence about yourself that includes one thing that is true and another thing that is not.
I play the flute and I'm really really good at it.

It IS all about the treat at the end! That's why I go grocery shopping! To get that Starbucks Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade at the end!!! We are such an incentive oriented society...

You guys have a GREAT time at Hershey! We're thinking about doing that one day this summer... amazingly this is a park that I have never taken the kids to. :/ Am I a loser or what?

I actually WOULD own an iguana... but the kids never begged HARD enough! LOL!
